” The setup is fantastic Paul, it feels like a totally different car. Thanks so much for the guidance and help. Regards, -Ben ”
Ben ordered KYB struts (with up-rated rear struts) and paired with the King Raised Springs on his ’06 OBXT and appears to love it.
” Hey, I just wanted to say that I received the kit and got everything installed. Everything was spot-on and fit up perfectly. I loved how each different stage of the install had its own separate set of instructions, parts list, and photos. It was really nice to never second guess which hardware to use or what parts went where. Install was smooth sailing. Thank you so much for putting the extra time and effort to get such a great product on the market! ” -Eli purchased 2″ Lift Kit 3/19
I get asked what makes a PRIMITIVE LIFT kit superior to other SPACER ONLY (cheaper) lift kits on the market. The answer is pretty simple. Our lift kits are designed around HEAVY DUTY King Springs. This makes our lifted car HANDLE much better than a spacer only lift, AND the heavy duty nature of the springs included with the kit, allow for much more load with less sag. Perfect for those doing OVERLANDING and loading the vehicle with people or gear or both! Also great if towing or putting any weight on the back of the car (spare tire or gas cans, etc) The other advantage of our kits is that they come COMPLETE with everything needed to lift and correct alignment. You don’t have to seek out those missing pieces like other “low cost” lifts. Our kits include springs, spacers, shock extensions, PRSS (Primitive Rear Subframe Spacers), brakeline brackets, and new heavy duty rear strut tops (reinforced) in some kits.
The spacer only lifts tend to give pretty vague handling and a soft ride (which is not always bad)
We have been in business for 21 years and have plenty of experience in designing, developing and manufacturing the best Subaru accessories out there. We carefully select the springs and components for our lifts for best ride, handling and longevity of the car. Most Subaru dealers buy our lifts that you see in the showrooms.
Look for our brand new Ascent TRIPLE ARMOR to come out soon. It will blow you away!

Recently during one of my rally schools, I was asked, “what is a tulip rally?”
Let’s start with what a TULIP is:
A tulip is a graphical portrayal of a Route Instruction (RI), generally needing no accompanying text. A sign or landmark may be incorporated in a tulip if needed, and of course a CAST (Change Average Speed To) if used in a Time Speed Distance (TSD) Road Rally. Tulips are often used on the popular TOURING and ENDURANCE and Brisk Gravel TSD Rallies in the NorthWest. They are a staple of STAGE RALLIES where PACE NOTES are not used.
We sell a lot of lightbars, lightpods, and brushbars. And I get asked all the time for: “the best lights possible” So I am writing a series of articles on DRIVING LIGHTS to help dispel some myths and shed some light on the many factors that go into choosing the best lights for your needs. PART 1
We get asked this question pretty often and it’s not as simple as it would seem, Subaru’s don’t have very large wheel openings and even so the size of the wheel opening often isn’t even the limiting factor.
A lot of our customers are new to Subaru ownership having switched from bigger SUV’s or Trucks to Subaru’s because they have better fuel economy and are just simply more comfortable to drive but still have off road capability. Subaru has built its brand around their symmetrical All Wheel Drive system which performs very well in most conditions, it’s perfectly suited for snow, gravel, mud or sand but when trails get deeper and the rocks get taller Subaru’s just don’t have the clearance needed to make it through that washout or water crossing. We don’t want you to have to cut your adventure short or feel like you’re going to do damage to your vehicle so by popular demand we’ve worked continuously to develop products to lift your car without degrading the on road performance.

Oil change access holes in Skidplates are a paradox that we encounter continuously at Primitive Racing. You’re putting large holes directly under the two most vulnerable places of your engine, the main two places the Skidplate is designed to protect. So the decision should be clear, but unfortunately not. Continue reading
